Dedicated Servers Description

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 basic varieties - hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate many clients and therefore the system resources per account are limited, VPS give you more configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the option to carry out everything you prefer without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is very simple. If your corporation has a busy web page, or just has very precise web server configuration requirements, the most sensible choice is a dedicated servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is of no concern. You are granted root access and can utilize 100 percent of the physical machine's system resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and intervening with your web portals.

Hardware specifications

The majority of website hosting corporations, including us at Pifusion X, offer several hardware architectures you can select from on the basis of your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a useful graphical user interface if you would like to use the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers through an SSH connection only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to grant full server root privileges to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software activated is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not give you full root access and is mostly suitable for someone who owns lots of websites that absorb plenty of system resources, but prefers to manage the websites, databases and email aliases using an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root-level access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans instead of using the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Pifusion X the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on 2 hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root privileges deletes something accidentally.
